Let's face it : One of the best reasons to live in Miami is the sunshine. It just makes us feel better, dammit. So when hurricane season hits and grey skies start rolling through, we locals start wondering what the hell we're supposed to do with ourselves when we can't hit the beach, the pool, or the boats.

But all is not lost. There are more indoor activities than you'd expect across the 305. Here are our top picks, just in time for this weekend's predicted storms. Just remember to bring your umbrella for that mad dash from the car.

10. Get Pampered.
It's spa month, so the timing couldn't be more perfect for you to get a break from the deluge. At $99 a pop, there's no excuse not to treat yourself to a massage, facial, or entire lineup of relaxing does-a-body-good-stuffs. From the Spa at Shore Club to the Spa at Mandarin Oriental, every place imaginable is offering killer deals.

9. Make Like The Dude.
Bowling is one of those pastimes you've forgotten you love -- till you don those dapper shoes and get into an epic battle with your best friends. By the time you've bowled a game or five, thrown back a few cocktails, and noshed on half price pizzas, you won't want to leave. Splitsville has all of the above.

Ohh wow..... Really loved your post.I don't want to miss any of these things in rainy days in Miami.Firstly i love this city a lot and specially in rainy season.There is always lot of fun to do in Miami in rains.. waiting for that.If anyone wants to make a plan to visit Miami then here is a best platform for them


Miami is more than beaches and nightclubs. So glad to find this article that highlights other cultural activities to enjoy when the weather is cloudy or rainy.  Our favorite activity, when weather is not cooperative for outdoor plans and we have OUT OF TOWN guests is the Art Deco Cocktail tour in South Beach. Don't have to worry about crowds and noise when it's cloudy--the best time to visit South Beach in my opinion. 

Instead of strapping on galoshes to puddle jump, we recommend to enjoy those stylish rainboots and raincoat and partake in a cultural tour! or
